Happy Dance, Happy Dance

Everybody Happy Dance!

It's Friday, and since my presentation passed with no need for revisions, I've finished that class.  Woohoo!!

I took last night off (from school anyway) and did more enjoyable things.  Like revising my short story.  And playing games with my sons.  And not stressing about how much homework I still have to get done.

It's nice to take a day off every once in a while.  I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm fairly overburdened with way too many challenges.  Writing is currently taking a back seat (most of the time) to other more critical items, so while I'd like to make it a full-time gig that I do every day, it's almost impossible.  It's kind of ironic then that I consider finding time to write part of "taking time off".  It's work, but it's fun work.  It's a balmy summer day for my soul and mental health.

The other thing on my radar is NanoWriMo.   I seriously wish I was done with this class and could participate this year.  And who knows, if I finish up by the end of this month, maybe I still can.  Last year, it was really fun to do and it felt great writing every day towards that goal of 50K words.  I got close last year too (almost 36K words) before I had to stop.  I don't regret it though, because I was able to focus once more on school and graduate last December with my Bachelors degree.

Don't ask me why I decided to go back for more homework fun.

Rather than continuing to ramble, I'm going to wish you all a fun-filled weekend.  Me, I'm going to get some writing done and launch my assault on Cyber-Law on Monday.  Now play the Peanuts song again and Happy Dance wherever you are.  It's Friday, and Fridays were made for dancing with abandon.

Have fun on your day off! I've got the day off too, and am loving it. Reading, writing, and watching movies is my kind of day off. (I even forgot to post a blog today!)

Enjoy your weekend, Eric! :-)

Eric said...

Sherrinda - Sounds like alot of fun. Enjoy!

Shannon - Thank you, I hope you have an enjoyable weekend too!

Misha said...

I'm glad you got done early.

Good luck with Cyber-law.

We all need days off. Friday night is usually movie night for me, as my brain is mush by that point.

WindyA said...

Days off are a necessity!

And I'm not doing Nano either. Maybe we need to start an offline non-Nano group. Hahaha

Eric said...

Misha - Thanks alot. I need all the luck I can get!

Alex - I know the feeling. Hope your weekend was nice.

Windy - If you start a non-Nano group, feel free to include me. :)

I know...November is just sneaking up on me. How dare it! But I do plan on doing Nano again this year...even though it is a busy month for me, and even thigh I'm still knee deep in revision hell and will not be done with this round by Nov. 1st...and I have no idea what I'll be writing come Nano-time. I'll worry about that on Nov. 1st. Fortunately, I'm good at winging it. I'm not a big plotter/planner/outliner.
If you change your mind and decide to Nano, you can buddy me at:

Cyberlaw....sounds, um, boring. *yawn* But could be handy info for a suspense novel! :) Maybe it'll come in handy for you.

I hope you have a wonderful week!
